The impact of rehabilitation services in county jails
This paper describes some of the problems encountered in the delivery of human, services to a county jail population. The authors' primary intention is to suggest the need to examine the effect of rehabilitation programs on reducing tension and anxiety levels among the jail populations. There are certain county correctional facilities that are referred to as penitentiaries, workhouses, and jails where individuals serve sentences for a fixed period of time as a result of their convictions in municipal and county courts. Herein, however, jails are referred to as those facilities that hold pretrial detainees who are unable to make bail. © 1978 by The Haworth Press, Inc. All rights reserved.
